Jane O'Reilly holds a PhD from the Sauder School of Business, University of British Columbia and an M.Sc. in Management from Queen's University School of Business. She is an Associate Professor in the area of organizational behaviour and human resource management. She teaches courses in organizational behaviour at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
Professor O'Reilly's research examines informal workplace interactions and relationships. Her main research areas are mistreatment and social sexual behaviours in organizations. Her work on third-party mistreatment is focused on how bystanders can help (and sometimes further harm) the targets of workplace bullying and harassment. She also studies workplace social exclusion as a form of mistreatment, and how being left out of the social circle at work can be detrimental to employees' well-being. Her research program seeks to understand when social sexual behaviour in the workplace translates into harassment and when it does not. Her work is published in peer-reviewed management journals such as Organization Science, Academy of Management Review and Journal of Management.
